Last night I recorded a dreamy, supermoon-inspired lullaby. Straight from my subconscious to yours, it was recorded live in a few multi-track passes with minimal editing in post.

Memorial Day weekend, deep in Oregon’s Umpqua National Forest, I played an afternoon live set featuring an equal mix of my released and unreleased material. I was really happy with how this particular collection and flow of music turned out, so I’m excited to share it with all of you as well. Enjoy!

Yum, new Boards of Canada. Reach for the Dead from the Tomorrow’s Harvest album dropping on June 10, 2013. This track is available for purchase now at Bleep.

Also, there should be a cover/parody band called Bored of Canada. Just sayin’…

Check out TM404 (aka Andreas Tilliander) working the various Roland x0x units into a juicy ear massage. So good.

I really like Four Tet‘s simple-yet-flexible approach to a live rig. For my last couple of live sets I’ve consolidated down from 8 to a 4-channel arrangement, and I’ve been enjoying the reduction of mental effort it takes to keep a set moving, while still maintaining some control over the fun bits to mess with live.

The comp has music by Kalpataru Tree, Subaqueous, Michael Maricle, Guda, Babajaga, and more, and is loaded with beautiful midtempo vibes to spice up your Summer soundtrack. Enjoy!
